This recipe, unlike the yogurt, actually worked! 🙂 It has a really good taste to it, but next time I may try to add more honey and butter, to try to get it to cluster a bit.

Make sure you keep checking it. I ended up mixing it every 1/2 hour to make sure it didn’t burn. (I thought my 4 quart crockpot runs a little hot.)

Ingredients:
5 cups oats (not instant)
3/4 c honey
1/2 c melted butter
1/4 c slivered almonds
1/4 c soy nuts
1/4 c sunflower seeds
1/4 c dried cranberries

Directions:
Mix the oats and other dry ingredients together in the crockpot.

Mix together the honey and melted butter, then stir into the dry ingredients.

Place the lid on the crockpot, and vent with a chopstick.

Cook on high for about 3-4 hours. Stir frequently. If you begin to smell the granola, it’s probably going to burn soon.

You want to get a nice consistent golden brown color. When it’s done, dump on some parchment paper and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy like cereal with milk, over yogurt, or with some fresh fruit! It also freezes well.
